Cheat Codes in Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) are codes you can input into the game to gain an advantage, at the cost of progression.
Cheat Codes in RDR2
Cheat codes have been synonymous with Rockstar titles for as long as we can remember, and RDR2 is no exception to that. However, cheat codes do not function as they have in the past, and it appears that the days of mashing different buttons on your controller in a sequence, are over. In Red Dead Redemption 2's more sophisticated approach. players can Pause the game, then visit "Settings", and press the "Triangle" or "Y" button to bring up the cheat page.
Upon your first visit to the page, you will see a screen similar to this, with most of the Cheats locked.
They can be unlocked by simply pressing "Triangle" or "Y" on a locked slot and inserting the Codes. The codes include a variety of advantages and hacks that can give you a little advantage, or outright break the game in your favor.
However, ACTIVATING CHEATS WILL PREVENT YOU FROM SAVING AND PROGRESSION, AND WILL VOID ANY ACHIEVEMENTS YOU EARN WITH THEM ON. So while it would be fun to run around with full stats, and all weapons, try to only do so when going on a rampage.
